Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

Recently I've been having extreme lucid dreams, accidentally. Probably induced by armodafinil which i used to deal with my lack of energy during the day.
As an ADDer, It's seems almost ironic that I have the most control of my mind when I'm dreaming.



I'm consciousness about my surrounding, i'm aware that i'm dreaming, yet the visual/sound sensory signal were so real, I almost feel the necessity to check if i'm still dreaming after I actually wake up.(by making a call to my father. the call won't put through if i'm still in a dream)


I can feel the calmness, the control over my mind when I'm dreaming. There's no racing thought, no depression, nor anxiety. I can even sit down and start meditate peacefully.


These are the strangest experience i've had in my life.


---------------------
This is the first post in this forum, and since my English is almost self-educated, I'd apologize in advance for any confusion caused by my poor language skill. Sorry.


I'm currently living in China, where ADD is not widely recognized as a proper 'illness' to be fixed. As well as depression(public knowledge regarding this issue is becoming better lately), OCD, autism ,etc. They are simply 'bad traits' which stand for irresponsibility in a people.

Only very few hospital can give diagnosis regarding these issue across the country, and proper treatment is virtually nonexistence. Even the production of most common stimultant for ADD, methylphenidate, was discontinued, leaving so many parents with ADD chilren helpless. There are very limited informed discussion in the Chinese ADD forum, that's the reason I reached out and found this forum.


Many of local ADD community members, including me, were forced to self-diagnose and self-medicate. I'm aware that self-diagnosis can be erroneous, and self-medicate can be dangerous. But I'm desperate to try anything to stop ADD from wrecking my life.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

Matrix reloaded is certainly one of my favorite films;
but there is a lot to be said for the first Matrix, it was truly groundbreaking.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

Ok, highway was kindof cool. I'll give you that. I saw movies that people made me watch back in the day. On my own I'm either documentary or horror. Either teach me something or scare me sh-less.

There is "faces to go with names" but I'd support a new picture thread because that one is long AF.
